Customer Question

I had the rear driver's side wheel bearing replaced at about 34,000 miles and now I hear same noise from rear end, maybe the passenger rear wheel bearing. I now have 47,000 miles on it. About how much $ to replace it? The first was under warranty.
JA: Besides this, what condition is the car in?

JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just wondering what rough cost will be to replace wheel bearing assuming that is the problem. Any extended warranty on this or recalls?

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you

I would say that you should expect to pay roughly $400 - $450 at a dealership. This job would likely be done at an independent shop for about $100 less than at the dealership, provided that aftermarket parts are available in your area for this car (it is sometimes difficult to source parts for cars that are less than 3 years old). One other piece of advice I will give you is to not let the dealership know that you expect it to be a wheel bearing (force them to diagnose it instead of going with your idea) and ask them to prove how and why they found the problem. I hope this info helps!
